A sworn translation is a translation carried out by a sworn translator certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Government of Catalonia, or the competent authorities in the translator’s country or region of origin.
Sworn translations are official translations and carry the translator’s signature and stamp, so that they have legal validity for any official bodies. In addition, sworn translations carry official certification from the sworn translator, appointed by the competent regulatory authority in the relevant jurisdiction.
Some official bodies may request that the sworn translator’s signature be authenticated before a notary public. If this applies to you, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Some documents to be translated or translated texts must be accompanied by the Hague Apostille. The Hague Apostille can be provided by a notary public and verifies the authenticity of the document internationally. At Ampersand Translations, we also translate these apostilles.
To get a sworn translation, simply send us the document to be translated via email. The translation can then be picked up from our office or we can send it (within Spain or abroad) via post or courier.
